We were scheduled to have seen plenty of America’s Cup action in different ports around the world this year, but due to the pandemic, the prequel series has been cut to just one event in New Zealand in December.
The PRADA America’s Cup World Series Auckland (ACWS) gets underway on December 17 and runs until December 19. Defenders Emirates Team New Zealand will take to the water against challengers Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli, Ineos Team UK and American Magic in a double round-robin format, meaning we will get a chance to see every team face off twice.
The series culminates on December 20 with the PRADA Christmas Race – a one-day knockout tournament comprised of two semi-finals and a final. Exciting stuff.
HOW TO WATCH THE ACTION
WHEN IS THE 36th AMERICAN’S CUP?
Don’t forget that this isn’t all of the action we’re going to see in these beautiful yachts. In January and February 2021, we have the PRADA Cup in Auckland and then in March we have the main event – 36th America’s Cup.
